My apologies if this post is late
I'm contending with something I hate
No matter what I've tried to do
I can't get rid of this blasted flu
I've aching bones, a pounding head
I'd rather just stay in bed
My ears are plugged, can't hear a thing
Even when the telephone rings
How many boxes of tissues I've used?
Countless, my poor nostrils are abused
And I blow and blow but all for naught
Because I've an endless supply of snot.
